Islamic Education Trust: New Horizons College, Minna – The College


New Horizons College is one of the four schools, established by the Islamic Education Trust, Minna, Niger State of Nigeria. It was established on September 10th, 1995, and initially took only day boys.

Today the school has both male and female students, each gender having its own section of classrooms, as well as separate boarding facilities, to cater for students from all over Nigeria, who had for long wished to benefit from the type of education offered by New Horizons College.
The school is a product of the vision of the Trustees who aimed to provide Muslim children and parents, with the right mix of Islamic and Western education to highest international standards.

The Mission Statement of the school is to foster Academic Excellence, Broad General and Islamic Knowledge, and High Islamic Moral Ethos. Alhamdulillah, we are on all fronts living up to the Mission Statement. Testimonies of this are the National Competitions the school performed well in within the past year: Bronze Medal in the Biology Olympiad 2006; Gold Medal at the International Young Physicists Tournament (IYPT 2006); Winners of Digi-Test ICT Cup for senior secondary schools 2006, Winners of ICT Digi-Test ICT Cup for Junior Secondary Schools; and Silver Medal at IYPT 2007. Our yearly WAEC results and performance in JAMB Exams reflect our commitment to high academic standards which have translated into large numbers of our students’ yearly gaining admission into various high institutions within the shores of Nigeria and beyond.

    SAWW, i heard about the College today from my brother and as an educationist based in abeokuta, i will like to know more about the College generally. My ambition is to establish school of my own and am already working along that path. i still need further understanding of how successful schools are run. for example, am presently the Manager, Aminat International College Abeokuta. i will like to make request if i can be allowed to come and understudy the College in order to assist my future ambition? and the cost implication of my request?
    i shall be grateful for your reply.

    Its one of the best blog/site ever seen my life. You have been shared best knowledge which is really helpful for everyone & I must say about your management of blog/site is fabulous & fantastic. Hats off to webmaster.

  6. a concerned parent

    why do you only write about the good things of the school????

    why don’t you also write about all your strict RULES
    all your expulsions for no strong reason
    and all the pains you cost parents to go through
    please be sincere and write all that
    be good Muslims and write the truth

  7. a concerned muslim

    salams,i pray that Allah swt exposes you and your hypocrisy….islam has a bad name worldwide and ure also adding to it…by using God and His religion to commit your own atrosities…my heart goes out to d parents and families that youve caused so much pain to…d name new horizons alone breaks hearts in many claim to be muslims but show no compassion at all…Aisha Lemu,it was this same attitude of yours that killed sunrise nur and pri sch in asokoro abj and you are using the same method to slowly kill d college….Maryam Lemu,ure also a mother i wish u sow d same fruit that you reap and hypocrisy will not take you anywhere…you are d type of people being described in d holy Quran as zilwajhain…going about lying to people that you have a degree in bisiness admin nd education just to deceive parents in handing over their children so youll help in shattering and spoiling their future…Salatu Sule ittakullah!!!Mustapha Masuod ittakullah!!! and its a shame that Sheikh Ahmad Lemu watch and shelters this under his watchfull eyes..ittakullah…Allah Wakil!!!!

      Dear concerned Muslim,

      Fear Allah and know for sure that a day will come when you will stand before Him and account for your deeds. And know that while Allah is ever merciful, He is also swift in punishment and the Lord of justice.

      More than likely you are spitting so much venom because your child or ward was suspended or expelled for exam malpractice. If that be the case, please retrace your steps to your Lord and seek His forgiveness and mercy.

      I am a parent of a NHC student. We were briefed about the suspensions and expulsions in a number of PTA meetings. The school took the stand and did not compromise based on its promise to Allah and to parents to imbibe the highest standards in the students while trying to raise vanguards of Islam and Muslims. You will have to be kidding to think that your child or ward will commit any serious offence without being dealt with. If you are used to committing offence without being punished or penalized then you have it wrong. And if you have passed the same to your ward then New Horizons College is not where you want to be.

      Why personalize issues? What have Aisha and Maryam Lemu got to do with your bitterness? On top of it all you have added slandering and backbiting to it. Accept the truth and work hard to remedy the situation because if you keep heading in the wrong direction you will only get further from your goal. Please let is be Mislims.

      Asalam alaykum.

  9. Barrister Halima Nagari Muhammad

    Salam, New Horizons College, Minna is a lovely college, it has improved my brothers and sisters greatly… My brothers are now graduates and our last born is in S.S 3Girls, she has vast knowledge of the Quran, Islam and general knowledge. She is looking forward to a brighter future cos she dedicated herself to the school as the school dedicated itself to them. I will definitely take my children to New Horizons College, Minna Insha Allah. It takes two to learn, encourage ur children to be respectful and willing to learn, then they will accomplish a lot, otherwise it’s suspension and expulsion. Every society has to have a Law, principles and norms or else it fall into CHAOS. We all have our faults, so let’s pick up the pieces, learn frm our past mistakes and do better tomorrow, Inshallah. Ma’asallam.

    I was once a student of the college and i feel proud to say i was once in an islamic oriented college,besides its like no other in the country so far…and please if you cant pass a good comment on people who do good for Allah’s sake,then reserve as much negative comments as you wish,even if they do it for riyah i dont think it has to do with anybodys buisness….as far as horizons is concerned it has done alot in grooming what i would refer to as students who REPRESENT wherever they go…..MASHA ALLAH…..really proud i was once a student…..
